Hi, having trouble identifying a flower I saw today, sorry if this isn't the place to ask this but I think it may be a garden flower that found its way into the wild, sorry no pic, it was a 1m tall flower, flower was slipper shape twice the length of toadflax, yellow with orange centre, leaves round 30mm similar to water marigold, this was growing in a dried up river bed, cheviots north of England, thanks if you can help.

Hi Steven. The nearest I can get to your description is Mimulus guttatus or Monkey flower. It is an American introduction here in the UK. Of course it may not be this plant but without a picture its the best I can do
That's it, thanks, I use to spot wild flowers years ago and something was just tickling the back of my mind when I saw this one but couldn't quite remember if I knew it and a good few Google searches of the description didn't come up with anything useful, but as soon as I saw monkey I knew it was right, thanks again :-)
So glad I could help, Steven.
